An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

MCLV Style: Emerald City

Since emerald was dubbed the color of the moment I dug this top out of the back of my closet for a recent sunny Saturday. When I got this piece I was actually a blonde and while it was quite pretty then I have to say I like it even better now that I’m a redhead. 🙂

I’m enjoying this trend – Emerald’s a versatile color and looks great against virtually all skin tones and hair colors {as opposed to, say, mustard yellow}. It’s also a great choice if you’re adding a “pop of color” to a look because it’s so eye-catching and bold. If you’re in the mood to explore the emerald trend than check out some of the fun pieces below:


{Left: BCBG Blouse – $89 @ Bluefly, Top Right : Carry-All Pouch – $46 @ American Apparel, Center Right: Emerald Necklace – $30 @ Bauble Bar & Bottom Right: Mossimo Cap-Toed Heel – $25 @ Target}

Another trend I’m MAD about this Spring is metallics – Specifically metallic cap-tied shoes like these Mossimo heels. Emerald + metallic = Spring perfection as far as I’m concerned!

Are you a fan of this season’s emerald trend? Have you found any pieces that you like yet for Spring 2013?

    You look great in emerald green hon. It’s a colour I never really wear, I don’t suit it at all, well I don’t think I do anyway. I absolutely love your jacket BTW and your bag, you have some fabulous clothes.
